    A molehill of truth made into a mountain of lies.

       Claim: Page 58: Every person will be issued a National ID Healthcard.

    False. There is no mention of any "National ID Healthcard" anywhere in the bill. Page 58 says that government standards for electronic medical transactions "may include utilization of a machine-readable health plan beneficiary identification card," to show eligibility for services. Insurance companies typically issue such cards already, but if such a standard were issued the cards would need to be in a standard form readable by computers. The word "may" is used to permit such a standard, but it does not require one.
